On Sat. The bike ran fine but each time I shut it down it was harder and harder to start. Once started it ran fine. Until I messed w/the pilot screw. Then it ran very lean and idled high. If I tried to turn the idle down it would just stall. In the end I could only get it to start w/the hot start on and turn the idle up. I changed the plug w/the same results.
I diassembled the carb and cleaned it. The air filter was fine, not over oiled. I have only had the bike out on a few short street runs in the past two months.
There was alot of mud and crap in the tps connector straped to the frame. The carb was spotless except a little crud in the tps cover but in my opinion not enough to make it run bad. I have not had a chance to test the bike yet. When I do it will be on a fresh tank of gas.
Does anyone know, if the tps connector had a bad connection would I experience these symtoms. I have had the bike out in temps from the 40s to the 90s w/out any problems. Sat. was about 65 degrees. I don't see how it could be a jetting problem.

You were wondering how my carb was set up, this is what the guy who sold it to me recalled:
Needle: EKP 4th clip
Pilot: Air 100
Hope you can get it sorted soon.
Btw, I got my bike inspected this morning at the Mobile- I'm fully legal now!

Don't know if this can be related, but I also fried my Baja Designs voltage regulator. The signals would not blink if the bike was running. They blinked fine when the bike was shut down. I tested the regulator and it is putting out AC voltage. Now the signals won't blink when the bike is not running. I think the flasher fried also from the AC voltage.
Anyone have this type of starting problems? I could not find a problem w/the carb.
Is there something in the electrical system that effects the starting circuit?

The "D" taper is better suited to WR timing. Try to find an EKP.
